Centrally located budget hotel with excellent travel links
The various Bloomsbury gardens offer a picturesque backdrop to a stay at the Crescent Hotel London, housed within a glorious looking Georgian building.
Just a minutes walk from Kings Cross and St. Pancras International railway stations, the Crestfield Hotel London is located perfectly for people entering the city internationally or those stopping over before heading out of the city.
Found on Crestfield Street directly opposite these two railway stations, this 2-star property offers travelers a budget option in a busy part of the city. Some of the hotels 52 rooms include en-suite bathrooms whilst others make use of shared facilities. Each room features a colour television, hair dryer, and tea and coffee making facilities. A continental breakfast is served each morning and included within the price of the stay.
It may not be the most luxurious or facility-packed of hotels, but the Crestfield is particularly popular thanks to its positioning within the city. It is ideal for backpackers, families, and business people alike, thanks to its comparatively inexpensive costs.
Those making the hotel their headquarters during a London visit can reach any of the citys attractions with minimal fuss. From the intriguing Swiss Cottage in the north to the Oval cricket ground in the south, nothing is too difficult to reach.
Found in the immediate vicinity, in addition to the two aforementioned train stations, visitors can enjoy the British Library, St. Pancras Church, and Regents Canal. The districts of Camden, Islington, and Highbury all lay within one stop on the underground. Each of these offers a different view on London life. Camden Town is somewhat bohemian, full of markets, colourful murals, and an eclectic mix of people. Islington is a largely modernised centre that features a number of fine restaurant, whilst Highbury falls somewhere in between.
Slightly further afield, the Crestfield Hotel London connects its guests to central London, including the West End Theatre District and Oxford Street shopping region.
The West End, which is scattered with theatres, cinemas, play houses, bars, and restaurants, is one of the citys featured tourist destinations. Its an expansive and expressive location that features hordes of people searching for that special show, as well as a number of unique, and often bizarre, street performers.
Oxford Street is the destination of choice for anybody that wants to root around the many large department stores and shops. Neighbouring Regent Street, Bond Street, and Tottenham Court Road can make for a monolithic shopping spree.
Londons varied range of museums and galleries are also readily accessible for visitors. The British Museum can be found in nearby Bloomsbury District not far from Oxford Street itself. The Natural History Museum, Science Museum, and Albert and Victoria Museum, all found in the Kensington district are highly recommended. Art galleries such as the Tate Modern and National Portrait Museum are also only a tube journey away.
If thats not enough, those world famous monuments that feature on so many holiday postcards also lay in wait. Whether its Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament or Hyde Park and Marble Arch that youre planning to visit, the Crestfield Hotel London offers easy access at all times. It also does so at an affordable price, which is a luxury in itself in the capital.
